Pickett County
At 9:00 AM the sky was full of Sandhill Cranes over my house.  Counting by 
fives, I had approximately 900 in large and small groups.  All were circling to 
gain altitude, giving their unforgetable wild call.   At 10:00 AM more came in 
groups as before, with a count of 260, making a total of 1,160 cranes.  Some of 
these could very well be part of the crane report I gave yesterday.

It would be helpful if everyone could give the date, time and place of each 
crane sighting to reduce the possibility of duplications.

Good Craneing,
Robbie Hassler
